The European Union has criticized Israel for allowing two Palestinian families to be evicted by police in east Jerusalem and replaced by Jewish settlers, expressing "serious concerns" over the action. Swedish government spokesman Anders Jorle said Israeli Ambassador Benjamin Dagan was summoned to the Foreign Ministry on Monday, where he was handed the 27-nation bloc's statement describing Sunday's evictions "unacceptable." The EU said "house demolitions, evictions and settlement activities in East Jerusalem are illegal under international law." Sweden holds the six-month rotating EU presidency until December. Palestinians, the United Nations and the US State Department also have criticized the move.
